    I've got a new version of a program and it said it couldn't open because it was missing a "bcrypt.dll"
    I looked up what this thing is and it's apparently a registry thing for Vista?? I googled it with "windows xp" and I haven't gotten a definitive answer whether or not I can actually install this on XP.

    If memory serves twice I experienced this issue. I grabbed bcrypt.dll versions from a dll download site. Put the file in the program folder and the error message asked for another dll. did the same and then it asked for another, and another. Finally I got the Kernal32.dll incompatibility error. Needless to say I aborted the ambition to install the program. One was VSDC which I wound up installing a legacy version. Good enough.

    suggest you go back to the old version, newer versions of some programs will not work on xp, :)
